Here is a list of the top 20 NHL career point getters after the `78-`79 season (originally printed in the original Hockey Compendium.) 1. Gordie Howe 1809 2. Phil Esposito 1492 3. Stan Mikita 1460 4. Johnny Bucyk 1369 5. Alex Delvecchio 1281 6. Norm Ullman 1229 7. Jean Beliveau 1219 8. Jean Ratelle 1157 9. Bobby Hull 1153 10. Frank Mahovlich 1103 11. Henri Richard 1046 12. Rod Gilbert 1021 13.

Ted Lindsay 851 So you have 19 legendary Hall-Of-Famers who`s careers are familiar to almost every fan. And amidst them you have Dean Prentice, a player who most fans (including myself) know very little about. It`s shocking that somebody who is rarely remembered or mentioned once ranked this high on the list of all-time top scorers. A look at his career stats show him to be an exceptionally consistent scorer throughout his career who was stuck on some lousy teams. I was wondering if any of the 45+ crowd on this site remember anything about him that they could share. Was he one of the most underrated players of his era? What were his strengths and weaknesses? Did he play well defensively? Should he be in the Hall Of Fame? Why is he forgotten? I`ve always been curious about him.
